If you ask a young person about giving or philanthropy, you may receive some blank looks in response – philanthropy is not a word used every day. But while they might not know it, today’s youth are already engaging in small acts of giving, whether it’s through their use of Gofundme pages or a range of other charitable donation opportunities.
